This is Cymro_Cymraeg’s first column for Wrexhamfan. Its purpose is to round up all the latest news from around the football club and get you readers excited for next season!
Here’s my column from last week’s Leader. It forms part of the paper’s comprehensive pre-match coverage every Friday, featuring interviews, an in-depth look at the opposition and lots of statistical analysis. All content in the column (c) http://www.leaderlive.co.uk. Last Monday Jamie Redknapp, showing the level of analysis we’ve come to expect from him, hailed Danny Welbeck as the signing of the century after he’d scored … Continue reading In Moult We Trust
I find the rough treatment meted out to ex-players tiresome when they return to their old clubs (except for those special circumstances where they made a mess before departing, of course!) I’d rather look at how an old boy is doing and feel pride that they’re doing okay without us. Carlos Edwards set up a goal last week; John Ruddy continues to carve out a … Continue reading Walker Flourishes on S4C
A theory about Rob Ogleby is current among the Wrexham Player commentary team. Basically, it goes like this: he’s the sort of striker with the potential to suddenly hit form, turn a corner and, given a run in the side, become a twenty goal a season striker. In the wake of the Christmas fixtures I have to admit that another possibility has come to me: … Continue reading Ogleby: The New Armstrong
So Stephen Wright gets a three game ban for allowing himself to be smacked in the mouth by a celebrity. And it wasn’t even Cheryl Cole, poor bloke. Naturally anger is directed at the FAW disciplinary committee which returned the verdict, but such fury is misplaced. They can’t help the rules they have to play by. It’s a remarkably similar situation to the one which … Continue reading The Law is an Ass
Here’s my column from last week’s Leader. It forms part of the paper’s comprehensive pre-match coverage every Friday, featuring interviews, an in-depth look at the opposition and lots of statistical analysis. All content in the column (c) http://www.leaderlive.co.uk. Football fans are different. Non-football fans have empathy for others. They feel people’s pain. We revel in their suffering. That’s why I’ve been flummoxed by English cricket … Continue reading You’ve Got To Be Cruel
>The Independent’s interview with Dean Saunders doesn’t necessarily come up with much that is new, although it’s still a good read, but getting national coverage just makes you realise what an advantage it is being a Welsh club! Being one of the big clubs in a country means we have a much higher profile than clubs like, say, Oldham, who are clearly superior to us … Continue reading >Saunders Hits The Big Time!
> Having seen his superb debut on Tuesday it was interesting to ahve a second look at Joe Allen in the Wales-England Under-21 game tonight. Admittedly he came on with only about twenty minutes left, but again he showed enough spark, movement and intelligence to suggest he’s much too good for the Conference. Let’s hope we can keep him for a while longer; after all, … Continue reading >Allen Shines Again
